livestock, sustainable agriculture, cattle budgets
In this report, livestock budgets for nine sustainable farmers in South Dakota who raise beef cattle and two of the same farmers who raise hogs are presented. Results of whole-farm economic analysis--in which the livestock, sustainable crop rotation, and non-sustainable rotation crop enterprise budgets on the respective farms are integrated with each other--are also presented. The final sections of the report cover results of analyses of (1) livestock price sensitivity and (2) on-farm manure production and disposition.
